Kistler Model 8728A Miniature K-Shear® Accelerometer

Kistler, Model, 8728A, Miniature, K-Shear, Accelerometer The 8728A500 is a miniature, lightweight accelerometer weighing only 1.6 grams. The sensor is constructed in an environmentally sealed, welded, titanium case. A Teflon integral cable is attached to solder terminals which are potted to permit cable repair. The unit is designed for mounting with an adhesive or mounting wax. Kistler's K-Shear technology assures insensitivity to base strain, thermal transients and transverse (cross-axis) acceleration.

Quartz sensing elements afford excellent long-term stability that ensures repeatable and accurate measurements. The Piezotron® low impedance output provides high immunity to noise and insensitivity to cable motion. If an extension cable is required, an ordinary low-cost coaxial cable can be used between the accelerometer cable and coupler and/or readout equipment. For low temperature or cryogenic applications down to -320F (-195C), request the 8728A500M8 version.
